The rollout started a few days ago for one of the most wanted corporate account features on G Suite. Google Assistant can now be used on speakers and smart displays. While this may seem like a small scale change, for those working from home it’s a massive feature. Everything you may want or need to do, including join meetings and review your calendar is now at your fingertips.

It’s certainly a sign of the times allowing more access to corporate data from personal/home devices. It’s a much needed addition as we continue to work from home through the pandemic. It not only free’s up screen space, but also device resources allowing you to be more productive as you attend meetings and continue to work.

The rollout is expected to finish by the end of July but it is worth noting, it is off by default. So you’ll have to annoy speak nicely to your system admins to get the it enabled.
